This was Jayaram's fourth successive loss to Wan Ho. The two had last squared off in 2013 China Open.

The opening game was contested on even keel, but at 18-18, Wan Ho broke away to clinch the early advantage.

Wan Ho was more dominant in the second game and did not have much trouble in sealing the issue.

The loss notwithstanding, Jayaram is expected to move up significantly in the international rankings from his current position of 20th.
